Early access to Endwalker, the new expansion for Final Fantasy 14, is finally available! If you pre-ordered this extension, you have access to all this new content several days in advance, like many players.
This long-awaited extension brought a large number of players simultaneously connected to the game, causing long queues but also bugs, such as the " Error 2002 ". This appears during the character selection, when a too many players are online at the same time. There is nothing to do to correct the problem, except wait!
- Unable to connect to FF14, long connection time, what to do?
Error 2002 on Final Fantasy 14, what is it?
Error 2002, which many gamers may encounter, is described by Square Enix as follows (source):
"The message 'Error 2002' may appear when selecting a character in the character selection menu. This error is displayed when the connection server experiences a heavy traffic or when the number of characters waiting in the connection queue for each data center exceeds 17. This is a measure to prevent the server from crashing due to extreme overloads.
If you encounter this error 2002 when trying to log in, we apologize for the inconvenience, but please wait a bit before trying again. »
It is therefore normal that you encounter this error when Endwalker is released, as well as when it is released from early access, since many players will try to connect to FF 14!
